Mystery story about a murdered/missing girl - engaging and fascinating.

Did You See Melody? - Sophie Hannah

 

 

Cara abandons her family to go to a five-star Arizona resort to try to sort out her present predicament. There she stumbles upon a tale of a murdered girl, Melody of the title. Has she seen the girl - alive and well? Without giving too much away, the story involves kidnapping and the threat of violence.

 

The plot moves along well with character development at all stages. Definitely a thriller, this novel is an eye-opener as I have not read any of Sophie Hannah's work before. I found the book to be original, engaging and well-written but, on finishing it, I found the plot a bit too convoluted and hard to believe.
